Ok here are 2 more fillings for the modakam.

Ulutham pooranam:
1/2 cup urad dhal soaked for about an hour.
dry red chillies to taste.
salt to taste
asafoetida - a pinch.

grind all this like how u do for vadais. Steam it in the idli cooker until done. Get it to a powdery consistency. Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds and add curry leaves. Put this pooranam and stir for a minute. After it cools , u can fill it in to the modhakams and steam as usual.

Ellu(til) pooranam: This is done on saturdays, offered to Saniswara Bhagavan and then distributed to as many as possible. You are not supposed to keep behind anything for the next day. Do and dispense the same day.

1/2 cup black til (ellu)seeds - soaked for 1/2 hour, washed and drained.
1/2 cup grated cocoanut
a pinch of cardamum powder
Jaggery powder as per taste.

Heat the pan with little water and add the jaggery (urundai vellam). Strain thro' a muslin cloth to remove any sand particles. Heat it again and when the water evaporates add cocoanut, til seeds and cardamum powder. The mixture will thicken. Take it out and cool. use as pooranam for modhakams. recipe given earliar by roja akka....i got it 4m archives..........thanx roja akka........lemme try this

MATAR MUSHROOM

Ingredients

200 grams Peas (Fresh or frozen)
200 grams Button Mushroom
2 Large Onions (Ground to a paste)
4 Large Tomatoes (Blended to a paste)
1 Tablespoon Ginger Garlic paste
50 grams nut paste (Cashew nuts preferably, boiled for 5 minutes and ground to a paste)
1 Large Bay Leaf (
Tez Patta )
3-4 Cloves (
Laung)
1-2 Green Cardamom
2 Teaspoons Garam Masala
3 Tablespoons Oil
Salt to taste

Method:

Wash the peas and boil in water for 5 minutes or till they are cooked.Rinse in cold water, Drain and keep aside. Blanch the mushrooms in boiling water for 1 minute. Rinse, Drain and keep aside.

Now in a wok or deep pan, heat the oil. When the oil is hot, add the Bay Leaf, Cloves and Cardamoms. Immediately afterwards, add the onion paste, Ginger Garlic Paste and the Cashewnut paste. Keep stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Cook till the paste is pink/light -brown and cooked. Now stir in the Tomato paste and cook till the oil starts appearing over the gravy. Keep stirring so that the gravy does not stick to the bottom of the pan. Now add the Garam Masala and let it flavor the gravy. If you want the gravy to be a little more spicy, you can add some red chilli powder at this stage. Now add the cooked peas and blanched Button Mushrooms to the gravy and cover for 2 minutes. Your Matar Mushroom is ready to serve.

Tip: for a unique restaurant style taste, I use 'Badshah' brand 'Nawabi Meat Masala', instead of the Garam Masala.
